Kentucky Derby betting odds are likely to be dominated by Big Brown
He is undefeated and has impressed enough to be the likely favorite in 2008 Kentucky Derby odds. He is likely to be followed by Colonel John and Pyro in 2008 Kentucky Derby betting odds. Let’s look at the top 10 contenders in 2008 Kentucky Derby betting.
Kentucky Derby betting favorites have traditionally done poorly in the Derby so many people will look to beat Big Brown in the 2008 Kentucky Derby. There are a few knocks against Big Brown in Kentucky Derby odds including lack of experience and a trainer in Rick Dutrow who has never been in the Derby. The two likely challengers to Big Brown in Kentucky Derby betting are Pyro who was looking like a possible favorite until showing a disdain for Polytrack in the Blue Grass and Colonel John who ran a big race in the Santa Anita Derby. The question for Pyro in Kentucky Derby betting will be how well he bounces back while the question for Colonel John will be how he runs on dirt after running on synthetic surfaces in California.
Other Kentucky Derby betting contenders on May 3rd will be Adriano who is working well for trainer Graham Motion at Churchill Downs and has top jockey Edgar Prado in the irons. Tale of Ekati may get some support in Kentucky Derby betting after winning the Wood Memorial. An interesting horse that at one time was the favorite in Kentucky Derby betting is War Pass. Many people believe he can’t handle the distance but he sure has speed and could be long gone if he gets clear.
A few other Kentucky Derby betting choices that will get some attention are Gayego who won the Arkansas Derby, Cool Coal Man who might bounce back after a poor effort, Monba who won the Blue Grass and Visionaire who is a solid closer.
Those are the top contenders in 2008 Kentucky Derby betting and the main horses to keep an eye on this year in Kentucky Derby odds.
